Exploring the Hawaiian Islands.......

Our bucket list is somewhat jumbled, but, we've always wanted to visit the Hawaiian Islands and see what true paradise is supposed to be! So when my Brother-In-Law called and asked if we wanted to meet him in Maui, we jumped at the idea. We figured 5 days on 3 different islands would quench our desire to soak up a little paradise.

Our first stop was Maui. We spent 5 days with our relatives here. I'll add the "Big Island" and Kauai in future posts. Maui was more than we could have expected. Rain forests, dormant volcanoes, fantastic coastline and wonderful residents. Our room was right on the beach with a south western view of Molakini and Kaho Olawe islands.  We toured by car most of the time and took a bus tour on "The Road to Hana".

I've tried to stay away from the normal images that everyone takes on Maui. There are a few "postcard" shots. I apologize for that. My goal is to give you a taste of the lush countryside and a little bit of the wonderful culture.
